Somerset Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers

Fleece Fair 2020

Fleece Fair 2020

The Fleece Fair will be held this year on Saturday 19th September 2020 from 10am to 1pm.

The format will be different this year.  To maintain social distancing and minimise waiting time we are offering an order, payment and collection at allocated time slot service.  The venue is the same, at Hatch Beauchamp Village Hall. 

Unfortunately, for health and safety reasons there will NOT be any demonstrations or refreshments available this year.

Details of fleeces that will be available will be posted as soon as we have them.

If you really need to come and look at the fleeces direct there will be time slots to book every 15 minutes .
